Displaying Future Posts in WordPress

If you do like I do and schedule posts ahead of time (especially on the podcast), there’s a way inside of WordPress to show your readers what posts are coming up next:

<?php
$my_query = new WP_Query('post_status=future&order=DESC&showposts=5');
if ($my_query->have_posts()) {
while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post(); ?>
<?php the_date(); ?> - <?php the_title(); ?>
<?php endwhile;
}
?>


This will display up to 5 “scheduled” posts wherever you drop in the code. Add a headline <h2> tag if you want to give it a title (should you want to use it as a widget).

Want to see this code in action? Check the WordPulse podcast page‘s sidebar to see it working!
